I got the Fokker in sight!

10 Posts

I’ve been waiting for years for this moment and today it finally came. On a radio vectored visual approach onto ILS 30 in Belgrade LYBE, ATC asked to confirm I have the preceding Fokker in sight and I could say:

I GOT THE FOKKER IN SIGHT

:-)

I had the honour a few years ago in AMS after landing.

I have to add that fuel prices have gone up at LYBE — I paid 1.15€/l for AVGAS today. It’s really getting expensive!

Priceless…..

You may want to check whether it is AVGAS

Ref the OP, I worked for Fokker most of my professional life. I was a little puzzled when the marketing department launched a promotional video with the title song (invent you own melody) which went like: FOKK-ER ON THE WING. Well, at least plenty of space I guess.

I had that pleasure in Amarillo, Texas about 10 years ago. I’m sure the tower controllers were probably all very tired of it by then, given there was at the time several flights in and out by a Fokker F100.

IMHO all the “funny” callsign jokes wear off pretty quick, like this one

This is not a breach of privacy because the pic was found on google, and the female pilot is very well known. That reg is however now gone – re-regd in Cyprus AFAIK.

Most funny callsigns are a pig to read out in a hurry.

One day, maybe, you’ll get the chance to fly around the Bronx, you’ll get to say “I GOT THE MUTHA FOKKER IN SIGHT”
